Abstract

This paper provides a comprehensive review of the literature that deals with issues surrounding the polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) cutter-rock interface during rock cutting/drilling processes. The paper is separated into two parts addressing eight significant issues: Part I deals with fundamental issues associated with temperature/stress distribution and loading force prediction, while part II focuses on issues related to PDC cutter/bit performance, wear and other failure phenomena, rock removal mechanism and cutting theory, rock properties, and numerical modeling of cutter-rock interaction. Experimental, analytical, and numerical methods are included into the investigation of the above-mentioned eight issues. Relevant concepts from metal cutting, micromachining, and other machining processes are also introduced to provide important insights and draw parallels between these interrelated fields.
